Radio coverage of Australia’s first tour to Pakistan in almost 24 years

SEN has announced a star-studded and familiar line-up for its exclusive Australian radio coverage of the upcoming historic Test series between Pakistan and Australia in Pakistan.

The call team will be on the ground in Pakistan to call every ball of all three Tests in what will be a historic series of Test cricket. It is the first time Australia has toured Pakistan in 24 years, with the last tour being in 1998 where Australia secured a 1-0 series victory.

Leading the call will be summer stalwart and SEN’s voice of international cricket Adam Collins, along with flagship SEN Test Cricket commentator and former Australian opening batsman Simon Katich, who will be there to provide expert commentary throughout the series.

One of the game’s greatest ever wicket-takers, Pakistan legend Waqar Younis will join the team to provide unique expert insights. As one of cricket’s most revered voices, the former Pakistan captain and coach will lean on all his skills and experience to take listeners closer to the action.

Highly respected broadcaster and scribe Izzy Westbury returns to the SEN cricket team, having been at the core of SEN’s coverage of the English summer in 2021.

Also joining the team will be the familiar SEN voices of Peter Lalor, Bharat Sundaresan, and Collins’ partner on the award-winning podcast “The Final Word” Geoff Lemon who will round out the team.

Sports Entertainment Network CEO Craig Hutchison said ‘as a cricket lover, it is an absolute privilege to see test match cricket return to Pakistan. To have such a strong call team on the ground in Pakistan for every ball of the three tests will be incredible for our listeners’.

The three-Test series commences on Friday 4 March with the First Test live from the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.  The Test series will then head to Karachi for the second Test beginning on Saturday 12 March before finishing in Lahore from Monday 21 March.

All three Tests air in prime time, starting at 4 pm AEDT each day. Listeners will be able to listen to every ball across the SEN Network and via the SEN app.

The SEN coverage of the test series is poor. In Sydney, there is currently no ball by ball commentary unless you look for it on DAB or the internet. The quality of the audio on DAB is poor as there are drop outs or the speech sounds like it is being played double speed like the chipmunks. The internet stream just hangs and does not work. If you are going to buy the rights then you should broadcast it.
